Q: I wake up each morning with sharp chest pains always in the center of chest.

The pain is always in the same location. My breathing is fine. It feels like a stabbing all the way through from my chest to my back. It is hard to get up, but once up and moving after about 30 minutes, the pain is gone until the next morning. Anyone know about these symptoms?

Goose Please see a cardiologist ASAP. It could be angina.

goosepooh,

 

I see that it has been a while since you posted, but I hope you are doing ok.  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but chest pain, particularly anything that feels as sharp as you describe is very serious business.  You should see a doctor immediately or go to the emergency room.  While it could be something minor, please don't take the risk.

 

If you are able, please let us know how you are doing.

 

Best of luck,

James
